News time with Millionday! Fri Night Part 2
[millionday] Talabani today in Berlin. Despite assurances from the Iraqi presidency and his party on the Kurdish improve his health, but private sources spoke to foreign media indicated that the Iraqi president is no longer able to distinguish between people.
Regardless of whether the president's health is improving or not, you are entitled to a sitting president to disappear from the political scene for a year and a half in the country barely out of a political crisis even enter into the other? And is it not time to waive the job yet? And is not this a democracy?
millionday] this of course is a very touchy situation with someone they hold great respect for ---jtank] It seems they are against the wall money wise[millionday] yes i would agree -- against the wall with bankruptcy for some provinces
[millionday] ok here we go this report is a little more expanded on a huge issue
[millionday] Baghdad welcomed the Oil Ministry, on Wednesday, the report of the committees of financial experts and compensation of the UN, which was held in Berlin last February and that the price of the respect for the Iraqi government to its obligations under international resolutions, as well as Iraq's commitment to work according to a comprehensive system to measure the amount of oil exported in accordance with the applicable standards in the oil industry.
Said Oil Minister Abdul Karim and coffee in a statement obtained by "tomorrow's Press," "The fifth report submitted by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to the Security Council the price of respect for the Iraqi government to its obligations under international resolutions, also praised the continued cooperation between the Committee of Financial Experts and the Committee on Compensation" .
[millionday] note -- this is the UN stating that Iraq has met all international obligations for oil exportation and also other issues coming in the rest of this report as well
[millionday] He added that "the report of the committees of financial experts and compensation of the UN, which was held in Berlin last February on the sidelines of the third meeting of the Iraqi - German, stressed the commitment of Iraq to operate a comprehensive system to measure the amount of oil exported in proportion to the practices standard in force in the oil industry,
a feat recorded in favor of the ministry ". He stressed that the report was "praised the Iraqi government policies meet its international obligations."
[millionday] note -- the counters for oil have been announced to be done so this is of course huge technical progress
[millionday] the first sentence is a whopper >>>>>>>>> He added that "Iraq's commitment to its international obligations enabled him to achieve his ambitions and aspirations and represent it in a clear acceptance of a member of the Transparency Initiative in the oil industry."
In the context of the conclusions reached on the issue of bail arrangements for the disbursement of payments to the Compensation Fund Board of Directors expressed its satisfaction with the constant conversion rate of 5% of the revenues from Iraqi oil sales and the equivalent of 5% of the value of non-cash payments to the Compensation Fund.
millionday] The Governing Council of the United Nations Compensation Commission as the authority responsible for the arrangements to ensure that the exchange of payments to the Compensation Fund, held its seventy-sixth in the period from 19 to 21 November 2013 was attended by a delegation from the Committee of Financial Experts Iraqi opening plenary session emphasized Chairman of the Committee reaffirmed the commitment of Iraq to fulfill its obligations.
millionday] so as we see nov 2013 -- we have seen multiple extensions as this has gone on for protection -- the protection of the funds of Iraq runs out May 22nd in the US
millionday] i have seen nothing leading to an extension
awesomedtl] We don't wanna see an extension do we!?
[millionday] no we want them to be independent and to a position to handle all of their own funds
[awesomedtl] If it hasn't Rv by then and there is no extension would that be a better indication of it happening soon!?
millionday] if the funds have not been transferred there will be a formal extension -- this is a formal arrangement so it would remain as so
[jtank] Is there any reason not to take the funds - They have purchased so much lately
[millionday] the reason they have agreed to this is for one thing -- they have not entered into the international arena and their currency agreements that are left after payments being made to pay off in the 80% range is because they are sitting ducks to the rest they owe until they activate their economic reform and start agreed on payments at the reality rate of the dinar
[millionday] when a debt is no longer covered by bankruptcy protection -- debt can be taken if owed by freezing accounts -- in international waters etc -- i have not researched exactly what can be done without laws being broken but it is the same concept as bankruptcy coming to an end
[millionday] brb with more
[millionday] a member just sent this to me

[millionday] this is huge for so many reasons
[millionday] Baghdad warned deputies in the different political blocs, on Friday, will be sent from Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to draft the National Safety Law beginning to dissolve the parliament and the imposition of a state of emergency in the country, taking advantage of the absence of the Chairman Jalal Talabani, noting that al-Maliki is trying to shuffle cards to gain momentum in the next parliamentary elections.

[millionday] Send this law came from in order to avoid the loss of a list of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in the next election and be a tool in his hand through the imposition of a curfew and house arrest on some religious and political leaders and stop all civil institutions. "
adds Alshahyla that " justify the deterioration of the security situation, according to the draft of the National Safety Law is the Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and therefore intended this law to muzzle the mouths, " predicted Rep. rib that "initiates Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki after sending the National Safety Law to dissolve the parliament and after the declaration of a state of emergency,"
warning the possibility of exploiting the absence of the President and the presence of Vice President Khodair al by al-Maliki to dissolve the parliament in the coming days and declare a state of emergency. "
[millionday] note -- this is a huge threat that will send parliament home if this becomes something that can be proven to be sustainable --- a state of emergency can be looked at in multiple ways -- the gather of huge power at a time of elections will of course be visited by multiple international agencies etc
[millionday] Article (8) in the first emergency law that "the President of the Council of Ministers to be exercised in the area or areas covered by the state of emergency:
1_ impose restrictions on the freedom of people to move, traffic and Joule in certain places or certain times,

" For his part, said a member of the security and defense committee in the House of Representatives Shwan Mohammed Taha said in an interview with the newspaper (range), "The law of the defense of national safety was not up to the Commission and currently exists in the Presidency of the Parliament"
[millionday] note -- looks very similar to Martial law here - note -- the borders would more than likely be closed with this move as well -- very interesting point
[millionday] He expressed surprise at the government has gone fighting in the provinces of Diyala and Anbar, without obtaining the approval of the House of Representatives. " asked Taha "Is the Iraqi government took the approval of the House of Representatives to present the National Safety Law", noting that "fight the battles in some provinces and the two continuously without the consent of the House of Representatives evidence of a violation of the Iraqi constitution.
" He Taha that "the state of emergency declared for a period of thirty days which can be extended with the consent of the House of Representatives," adding, "but the Iraqi government for more than a year practicing war game under the names of strange and wonderful without the approval of the House of Representatives.
[millionday] note -- also the parliament members have been at great risk due to the media reports of the implications of the lack of budget and also the work expected -- some have been attacked and they are in fear
[millionday] promised Kurdish lawmaker that fight the battles during the past period without the consent of Parliament is illegal or legal, jumped on the Constitution, "pointing out that the Prime Minister seized throughout the period of the decisions and institutions of the state security. pointed Taha that "more than four months of the crisis of Anbar and media blackout it is still continuous and definitively on the size of losses our security forces of physical,
human and also civilian casualties, as well as ignorance of the number killed the terrorist groups of Daash and al-Qaeda. "
stressed Taha that "the purpose of submitting the National Safety Law by the government is to create a fabrication political confuse security to declare a state of emergency to disrupt the elections or to ensure the victory of a coalition of state law, the election results in any way. "
[millionday] note -- they are assuming that this is being done to gain control as a one sided gain -- hmmm -- as i stated sounds like martial law so they must agree - and again would explain closed borders during this period if this occurs
millionday] " to the MP from the bloc united Hamza Alkrtani in an interview with the newspaper (range) to send the National Safety Law is tantamount to a coup attempt against the democratic process, "noting that the choice of this time sensitive and dangerous it has a lot of question marks.
" said Alkrtani that "al-Maliki seeks to implement martial law and emergency government and cancel the elections unlike his claim diligence on the democratic process and the elections and the transfer of the system from a parliamentary to a presidential lesson create chaos, violence and sectarian strife," and added that "all the blocks Political reject this law and will stand against him. "
